Corruption is increasingly recognized as a preeminent problem in the developing world. Bribery, extortion, fraud, kickbacks, and collusion have resulted in retarded economies, predator elites, and political instability. In this lively and absorbing book, Robert Klitgaard provides a framework for designing anti-corruption policies, and describes through five case studies how courageous policymakers were able to control corruption.
Robert Klitgaard is Dean and Ford Distinguished Professor of International Development adn Security at the RAND Government School. He has been a professor at Harvard and Karachi Universities and has served as a consultant in twenty-one nations in Asia, Africa, and Latin America.
"Controlling Corruption is a brilliant book. It is far and away the best work on the subject that I have read and I think the best there is."—Aaron Wildavsky, University of California, Berkeley
